An English Edwardian period inkwell from the early 20th century, with brass equestrian motifs and wooden base. Born in the early years of Queen Victoria's son Edward VII's reign, this elegant piece features a central inkwell, accentuated in the back with brass equestrian motifs such as a slanted horseshoe supporting the plume pen and topped with a horn and a whip. The ensemble is raised on a cavetto molding wooden base, whose dark hue compliments the golden color of the top beautifully. With its small proportions and lovely décor, this English inkwell on base circa 1900 will bring a touch of tradition to any home, particularly placed on a desk.
